Youth Communicator for a World without Nuclear Weapons

  1. As the only country to have ever suffered atomic bombings, Japan has the responsibility to firmly pass on to the next generations the correct understanding of the realities of nuclear weapons beyond borders and generations. In this regard, in September 2010, the Japanese Foreign Ministry launched “Special Communicator for a World without Nuclear Weapons” to support atomic bomb survivors (Hibakusha) to tell their first-hand experiences about the consequence of the use of nuclear weapons.
  2. As Hibakushas are aging, in order to transmit the reality of atomic bombings to future generations, the Japanese Foreign Minister, Mr. Fumio Kishida launched “Youth Communicator for a World without Nuclear Weapons” in April 2013.
  3. Japan has decided to strengthen its networking, and to assign young people from different countries but with the same spirit who will make this program more global.
